Hazus Team releases software update

from IAEM

The Hazus Team has released the latest update to Hazus 4.2 software. This update accomplishes the following improvements:
  • Earthquake losses support the incorporation of soil amplification with USGS probabilistic ground motions.
  • The Advanced Engineering Building Module (AEBM) processing time is substantially optimized to support large (>1,000) record sets.
  • Users can now select USGS scenario ShakeMaps directly from the hazard selection menu.
  • ShakeMap ground motion data draw faster and are mapped according to official USGS color ramps.
  • User-friendly guidance is provided for importing flood hazard data.
These updates are distributed as Service Pack 2, which will automatically install on top of Hazus 4.2 for most users. If your network prevents automatic download of software updates, visit the Hazus download page to download the update executable and to see a full list of enhancements and defect fixes. more
